The seventh match of the Women’s Asia Cup T20 2022 will see Sri Lanka Women take on Thailand Women at the Sylhet Outer Cricket Stadium in Sylhet on Tuesday, October 4.
Sri Lanka Women got off to a losing start to the competition. They lost to India Women in their opening game but bounced back to beat the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Women in their next fixture to grab two crucial points.
Batting first, Harshitha Madavi top-scored with 37 as it helped the Lankan side post 109 in their 20 overs. In response, UAE Women got off to a flying start before rain played a spoilsport and the game was curtailed to 11 overs.
The Lankan bowlers then bowled well to restrict the UAE Women to 54 to win the game by 11 runs on the DLS method. They will be eager to carry forward the winning momentum.
Thailand Women, on the other hand, didn’t have the best of starts to the competition. They faced Bangladesh Women in their first game of the Women’s Asia Cup T20 2022 and suffered a heavy loss.
After electing to bat, the Thai batters failed to adapt to the conditions as they were bundled out on 82. Phannita Maya top-scored for them with 26. The bowlers then managed to pick up only a single wicket as they were unsuccessful in defending the total. They will hope to put in a much-improved performance against Sri Lanka Women on Tuesday.
